Around 200 police officers also searched the offices of Apple Daily, a Hong Kong tabloid published by Mr Lai’s media company, Next Digital. Officers on a police livestream were shown removing evidence in plastic boxes.

Seven people were arrested Monday morning, all men aged 39 to 72, for allegedly breaching the national security law. Police said the operation remained ongoing and that further arrests were possible.
